    A rousing chorus of "two world wars and one world cup" is just what our brave lions need to see them through this game imo

    Why so many unreliable City players ?

    I know we didn't have a great season but has the desperation really come to this nonsense?! Quantum energy?
  9. Great aggression by Marlon to win that ball on the edge of the box

    What is Esport?

    It's basically competitive computer gaming. The players have salaries, teams, coaches, psychologists, sponsorships etc. just like in football, and they join/leave teams as well regularly. There are governing bodies (often run by the makers of the game) who set the rules for the tournaments, similar to FIFA or whatever. It's huge in South Korea in particular, and their official government body to manage it is a member of their olympic committee. A few football clubs have some players now (notably Barcelona). As someone earlier mentioned, it's getting huge now, with millions of viewers across the world and gigantic sponsorships (Mercedes, Coca Cola, Redbull, Intel etc.). It's growing much more quickly than I expected, and certainly beats when I used to watch grainy old Warcraft 3 and Starcraft videos and replays 15 years ago Some games are 1v1, some are team based - 5v5 for example. There are tournaments across the world on a regular basis. A large one is coming to Birmingham Arena in May, with a prize pool of around $1,000,000. Tickets sold out in under 10 minutes I think! A lot of people are dismissive of it for some reason but I quite enjoy it - but then I've played games for a lot of my life.

    What a bloody fantastic season this is!

    And here's a nice positive thread but your first post before anything else is talking about the moaners in other threads and complaing about OTIB being in meltdown. I legitimately see far more posts complaining about "meltdown" and the like than the actual posts they apparently reference. I'm not saying those posts aren't annoying and there aren't overreactions of couse. We've been on a poor run for three or four months though and the knives have only really significantly been out for the last few weeks. It hasn't been that bad. The circlejerk on both sides is equally annoying. One win and the threads like this are out after all

    What a bloody fantastic season this is!

    Are they? I seem to remember back in December our main concerns according to OTIB are whether we'd accept £25m or £30m for flint, and whether Patterson would play in behind Bobby every game in Russia, or we'd try and let Kane get on the pitch. It works both ways in my opinion. Personally I find the endless posts talking about the overreaction in every thread while patting yourself on the back for being so reasonable (a favourite of yours and a few others) more annoying than the overreaction itself, derails more threads, stifles legitimate discussing/criticism... and certainly more abundant than the overreactions themselves.

    "I tend to agree"

    tend1 tɛnd/ verb regularly or frequently behave in a particular way or have a certain characteristic. Don't see the problem myself?
